Reflecting a post-war era in which the revolutions of the 1960s had yet to filter into the mainstream, Davidson’s photographs reveal countries riven by difference, the extremes of city and country life, of the landed gentry and the common people, and lucidly portrays the mood of these times in a personal and provocative imagery that is as fresh today as it was at that time.
